  Venture Logo


A longer kayak is a faster kayak, allowing you to cover larger distances; the Islay 14 is an adventure touring kayak with a length similar to that of a sea kayak, but in a format that offers a little more stability and manoeuvrability.

Ideal for beginners and intermediates who want to try their hand at cosy weekend adventures and relaxed journeys of up to a week in length on canals, sheltered lakes, and gentle rivers.

Ideal for the following:

  • Medium to long distance journeys

  • Exploring lakes and gentle rivers with ease and the confidence to take photos from the kayak

  • The best combination of hull efficiency, speed, and a manageable size

Weight: 25.5 kg

Slender Bow & Stern

  • Slice cleanly through the water and engage for great tracking, with a vertical stern cut-off giving maximum waterline for optimal hull efficiency

Dynamic Volume Distribution

  • Lifts the bow over waves for a drier ride, increases stability, and gives excellent gear carrying capacity

Wide, Shallow ‘V’ Hull Mid-Section

  • Gives great speed and tracking whilst being reassuringly stable and easy to manoeuvre

Swede Form

  • Widest point behind the paddler for stability without hindering paddle strokes

Large Cockpit

  • Sized for all-day comfort, easy access, and spraydeck compatibility

Toggle Handles

  • Used for carrying, or for keeping hold of the kayak after a swim in moving water

Paddle Park

  • Store your paddle safely whilst fishing, taking photos, or just relaxing

Large Bow & Stern Hatches

  • Ample, water resistant storage of your picnic or camping gear, featuring market-leading KajakSport hatch covers

Foam Bulkheads

  • Separates the hatch compartments from the rest of the kayak, and prevents flooding in the event of a capsize

Deck Bungees

  • Store maps, hats, and more close to hand

Deck Lines

  • Running along the perimeter for increased boat handling options, particularly during rescues

Security Point

  • Attach a cable lock to secure your kayak during storage.
